    Isn’t that Bill Melvin again?
    I’m guessing he could make a career at liquidating Indian Motorcycle Factories that have disappeared.
    I don’t see that fancy shmancy engine assembly table listed on there anywhere.
    Guess it had to go back to the local Piggly Wiggly loading dock.

    Funny thing….. KIWI is still doing business……..

    Could it be that some Indian endeavors have a better business case than others…..???

    I think that there is enough equipment, machinery, materials around that the if anybody wants to become a or start a Motorcycle Business, they can start up in the morning! There is so many opportunity’s available, for every aspect of fabricating, fixing, building, shipping, or selling Motorcycles.

    Too funny… it seems to consistently be mis-uderstood that Indian was actually purchased by another company… they sell redundant parts and keep the jewels….. it’s actually a simple concept you think about it. Quite different from ’04 out in Gilroy………

    KM Haters… go take a ride on your Gilroy an/or HD 🙂

    If and when owners of these newer Indians need parts body or mechanical where and when will they be available and for how long ? Thanks B.R.

    Hi Rick.
    Dang good idea.
    I think I’ll go take a ride on my Gilroy right now.
    Hell of a lot better ride than the KM I rode.

    Bryan;
    If and when owners of KM Indians need parts they better hope that Polaris supplies them.
    KM reps told me the bikes were built supply to demand–no excess stock or inventory to pay overhead. I’m guessing there has to be at least a few KM riders wondering where replacement jugs are going to come from if they ever need them. That nicosil coating is not rebuild friendly.
    Best the KM boys can hope for is body parts supplied by the Gilroy excess that is still around.
    Oh well–Crazy Horse is still supplying engines and support for the Gilroy bikes–I guess it’s prett dang easy to slip a Crazy Horse V-Plus into a KM frame–it is a copy of the Gilroy frame after all.

    @crazy horse marketing via KC Cheef .. I would expect nothing less…..

    Hello Rick;
    Well I do like Indian Motorcycles, and Crazy Horse is managing to keep quite a few of them on the road. Mine included.
    Rick I don’t believe I know you.
    Do you ride a KM or a Gilroy or a Springfield or one of those Moped Indians?
    Lot of Indians to chose from nowdays and looks like more in the future.

    KC Chief.. Crazy horse will never be able to compete with Polaris.. the story you’ve been spewing is now dead and over.. find something new to bitch about.. it’s OVER KC.. got it? it’s over because no one cares!! and with you going on and on and on every chance you get.. you only make Crazy horse look stupid! You think he’ll ever own Indian now? NEVER!!!! Move on with it! sheesh, give it a rest.

    KC Cheef is the most annoying person on this blog.

  12. 12 never Jul 15th, 2011 at 8:08 am

    no doubt. the dude needs to get over Crazy horse. like beating a dead horse. great that you have an opinion KC.. REALLY.. but who GIVES A FLYING *F* anymore. Crazy Horse will NEVER EVER own Indian. NOt the slightest chance. And just because you couldn’t afford a new bike yourself, doesn’t mean you have to bash anyone who could.

    LMBO–here come the PERSONAL ATTACKS.
    I thought it was against the Cyril Huze Blog terms of agreement to personally attack others.
    You 3 need to get a room together (again)
    Far as I know Crazy Horse does not want to own Indian.
    Did at one time–but after this latest flim flam I doubt he’d want to even consider it.
    I can’t imagine ANYONE wanting to take on that sad story after the latest debacle.
    One thing you have to admit.
    Crazy Horse did outlast Kings Mountain.
    Hey never.
    You been talking to my accountant?
    How would you know what I could or couldn’t afford?
    I plan to purchase another bike in the next year or so.
    Guarantee you it won’t be a KM bike unless they discount the Vintage down to about $15,000 which MIGHT be a fair price if it carries a valid 2 year warranty. $35,000 they ask now? Nope not me.
    As for Crazy Horse competing with anyone?
    I’m thinking Crazy Horse is happy enough being where they are right now.
    Crazy Horse seems to be growing–and the Steves have disappeared.
    WHY would tCrazy Horse even dream of competing with Polaris.
    You 3 need to get over the KM thing.
    The bikes were cheap copies of Gilroy Power Plus bikes no real improvement but an outrageous price tag.
    KM didn’t build in my opinion–they copied and tried to tweak cheap.
    I would imagine if any of you 3 were suckered into buying one you must be feeling a little used right about now.
    Problems that have been known since I rode one confirmed by a whole lot of folks who are trying to ride them now–and new multiple problems popping up every day.
    Would you like to see one of the latest stories of a KM rider and his problem?
    I can copy a post onto here and let you judge.
    KM factory is gone and all you have left is EXPENSIVE motrocycles with issues, and a hope of a promise from Polaris.
    Goooood Luck with that.
    Even the KM dealers seem to be giving up and closing the doors.

    John White and Crazy Horse Motorcycles made a pretty good score at the KM factory liquidation.
    Picked up the Paint Booth, and the Rolling Test Booth.
    I scored a filing cabinet.
    Yes I did!!!!;)
